    I have an ADR at Tusker House at 8:25 a.m. o 4-29. This is before park opens so how do I go about getting in there? We are camping at Fort Wilderness so we don't have a hotel cardkey to show. Also, will I be missing the opening show to the park?

    Hi Hazel!  No worries about getting into the Animal Kingdom Park before it opens when you have a dining reservation.  When you approach the main gate please head to the right where you will see cast members with a clipboard.  You simply give them your name and time of reservation and then proceed through with your park ticket as you normally would.  There will be cast members along the way to direct you to Tusker House for your great character breakfast!

    Even though you are camping at Fort Wilderness you will still be given "key" cards.  This will show that you are indeed a guest of a Disney resort and it doesn't matter that you are sleeping on the ground or in a luxury suite as you still get the same privileges as all other resort guests.

    You will miss the opening show with an early dining reservation but I wouldn't worry too much about that.  You will be having fun with Donald and friends at Tusker House and can catch the rest of the gang later on during the parade.  Since the park opens at 9:00am and you most likely will still be eating I would suggest that perhaps one member of your group takes the tickets and heads to the Safari to get some Fast Passes for that attraction right at 9:00.  You will only be steps away and would take just a few minutes and would give you a Fast Pass to start your day.

    Have a  great day!
